The Sermon On The Mount: Salt And Light

13 Ye, are the salt of the earth; but, if the salt become tasteless, wherewith shall it be salted? it is good, for nothing, any more, save, being cast out, to be trampled on by men. 14 Ye, are the light of the world: it is impossible for a city to be hid, on the top of a mountain, lying. 15 Neither light they a lamp, and place it under the measure; but upon the lampstand, and it giveth light to all that are in the house.
